LCEC is a proud member of Touchstone Energy Cooperative
Due to a system upgrade, Smarthub and Pay Now will not be available on Saturday, December 9, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience.
LCEC has developed a program for environmentally conscious customers by providing a means to
interconnect their renewable generation systems (RGS) including photovoltaic systems (PV) to LCEC’s power grid.

What Is Net Metering?
The LCEC Net Metering program allows LCEC customers with a renewable generation system (RGS) to
offset all or part of their energy use. To offset energy use, the output from the customer’s RGS must be
used downstream of the meter where it is connected.
Energy not consumed when it is produced is sent to the grid as excess energy and is accumulated and
accounted for in reserves to be drawn upon as needed to offset future energy use from LCEC. Unused
reserves (also referred to as banked usage) remaining after the December billing will be payable to the
member in January at the calculated avoided wholesale rate for the prior year. Payable amounts less than
$25 will be applied as a credit on the bill. All other amounts will be paid by check. Since the avoided
purchase power cost is variable and is less than the retail rate, it is prudent for members to install a RGS
that produces up to the amount of energy the member uses in a year.
We have recently updated our Interconnection agreement, Application and Compliance Form,
and our ESMR handbook regarding disconnect switch specification for all tiers. Please
ensure the most recent updated forms are submitted and installation of all equipment meet
LCEC specifications to avoid delays.
